I offer a Humanistic approach and introduce the concept of person in relation to their environment as a means of forming a hope-filled foundation for therapy. By acknowledging how internal experiences are highly sensitive to external conditions we support a frame of healing that envisions each person as whole and fully capable of personal development. I incorporate elements of both Psychodynamic and Systems Theory to facilitate self-exploration while also addressing how culture, society and all host of environmental and systemic factors may impact our overall health and wellness.

Care is collaboratively formed and relationally applied. I draw from Mindfulness, Expressive Arts, Somatic and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy; which provide highly effective means for developing both internal and external wellness skills. I also introduce an Existential Therapeutic approach when exploring identity, relationships and processing grief and loss.

For me therapy is both art and science, and not one size fits all and so I draw upon a variety of therapeutic modalities. Beyond any treatment we may try on I understand my role as a partner in healing, not the leader. My offer is to remain present, listen well, and encourage your voice. Healing's a practice of stepping into empowering beliefs. I'm with you.
